Tony Adams has big NFL goals

Adams started more games than any other true freshman at NC State in 2014 and continued that trend as the Wolfpack’s most experienced starter in his senior year.

As a lineman, footwork is key to Adams’ game and he believes playing tennis has helped in that regard.

“One thing that’s honed in on is being able to move well and move at a fast pace and being able to move your feet,” Adams said of playing tennis.

“It would have been really nice to be invited to the combine to talk to teams but no matter the journey to get to my NFL career, it doesn’t matter where you start, it’s where you finish.

“”No matter the journey to get to my NFL career, it doesn’t matter where you start, it’s where you finish.” Adams may not have an NFL win under his belt just yet, but he certainly has a winning attitude as he approaches the NFL Draft.

State players are expected to be drafted this year, a few of whom are defensive linemen Adams routinely practiced against.
